Steve Hill of Island writes:

A very tight and tense decider which went right to the last ball.

Vallance set about Island's total quickly and were ahead of the required run rate from the start.

When Shahriar and Sadi hit 21 off the 11th over (Dheraj Shamoo's first and last of the innings), it looked like Vallance's game.

They needed just 34 off the last 5 overs with only 3 wickets down.

But Tanjeem Chowdhury swapped ends and his next over conceded jsut 1 run.

Ashley Quayle, not-so-slow left armer was also very economical, but Vallance crept to within 15 of Island's total without losing any more wickets and 2 overs to spare.

In brave captaincy, Namith Moorthy was brought on as Island's sixth bowler for the penultimate over and although he went for 10 runs, he took the vital wicket of Sadi, bowled for 24.

So still 5 short of Island's total, opening bowler Shiplu was brought back on for the final over.

After a dot ball then a single to Fahmid, the next ball took out Shahriar's middle stump.

A wide followed and looked to be handing the game to Vallance, but three more dot balls to the new batsmsan, Shuvo, saw Island home in impressive style to win by 3 runs.
